Even the capos these days confuse me by their design. Please just give me something uncomplicated.

"This is called a 'cheater'...a 'double-action' cheater...you could lose a finger if you don't watch out..." Bob Weir, adjusting his capo on "Bear's Choice". :)

I think those trigger-style capos, like the Kyser and Dunlop models, are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I've got one of those clamp-and-screw type capos, and I swear by it, even for a 12-string...

Dunlop Trigger Capos are the easiest for me to use on my guitars.

Once saw a photo of Sleepy John Estes. His capo was a pencil with elastic round it .

I once had a string snap and embed itself into the back of my hand. It went in about a half an inch. I was so freaked out I had to have someone else yank it out. This was without a capo tho..
